Tip Tuesday: Side Boob (and how to avoid it!)

Happy Tuesday! We are back from vacation, and (semi) recovered from all our adventures (lets not talk about the laundry though, m’kay?) and I’m excited to share a new blog series with you: Tip Tuesday and Fail Friday! This idea came up while a dear friend was visiting a couple weeks ago- I’m sure you…

Applique Bikini Hack!

Since swimsuit season started (which is right after Valentine’s Day according to the ever strange advertising schedule of big box stores) I’ve been lusting over the applique swim bikini’s I’ve seen in those annoying (but sometimes useful) ads on Facebook. I was stymied, however, by what type of appliqué would be suitable for swim. Well,…

Green Tee Hack: Side Lace-Up!

You know what I LOVE about a great staple pattern? The ability of hack it of course! The Green Tee by Greenstyle Creations is a great example: solid drafting (no sleeves cut on the fold! Can I get a hallelujah?!), perennial style and clear instructions. In fact, I love the Green Tee so much, I’m…

Always Be a Mermaid….

                               When I was a little girl, I was often home sick from school (chronic ear infections….plus a little lollygagging), and while I was “recovering”, my favorite thing to do was watch Peter Pan on VHS (am I dating myself a bit here?). The best part was when Peter is visiting the Mermaids in…

Mother of Dragons

We’ve really been feeling the Dragon theme around here, but last time I got left out of all the fun! I knew I could make it up to myself with the new round of fabrics up for pre-order from Pink Zeppelin that feature All. The. Scales. (Seriously, everything from lizard to alligator are represented, including…

Brassie Jogger Hacks: Stretch Woven Brassies!

  Every so often, someone asks if the Brassie Joggers (made before here and here and here) can be made in a woven material. I initially dismissed this idea, as possible but nuts- who would want to wear woven instead of a soft comfy knit? I changed my tune when another reviewer posted a photo of…

More Moxi’s!

Surprise Surprise! I made more Moxi’s! During testing the others testers kept sewing up all this gorgeous floral scuba, turning me a little green with envy (not a very flattering look for me). I knew I would have to make up a pair as soon as I could source it, and lucky for me, the Fab…

There Be Dragons Here…

I’ve mentioned before that my son Oliver LOVES fencing. And at twice per week, its pretty ingrained in the rest of us too (even the baby knows a few moves!). So when the “knights and dragons” round 13 at Beanpop Fabrics came up for strike offs, I jumped on it, knowing I would have to…

Float like a Butterfly, Sting Like a Bee…

     Summer calls for cute, stylish clothes that don’t constrict, allow plenty of airflow, and take a second to throw on (in between mediating sibling rivalry for the umpteenth time, tackling the mountain of laundry, and making yet another full meal for the children who seemed fine on only 3 meals a day before school ended…

Midway Bomber Jacket Sewalong: Round UP!

It’s actually been a couple weeks since I wrapped up the Midway Bomber Jacket Sewalong over at Pretty Posh Prints, but I wanted to make sure and document it on my blog (finally)! It was a whirlwind of sewing, pattern hacks and collaboration, but it couldn’t have gone better, and I really enjoyed the experience.…
